Palm snuck a new gesture into webOS 2 - two-finger swipe for launcher

Sure, webOS 3.0 may be doing away with the gesture area and sure, we are still preemptively mourning its loss - but that doesn't mean that everybody's favorite touch-sensitive zone beneath the screen doesn't have at least one more trick up its sleeve.

NickTVPre discovered that when you're in an app, you can swipe up with two fingers from the gesture area to simultaneously go into card view and bring up the launcher. Previously you had to either swipe up twice in succession or pull up the quick-wave launchbar and hit the launcher arrow. It only appears to work on webos 2 and higher.
